Recommended Reading for Option Enthusiasts


Options are not that complicated and are greatly misunderstood by not only the general public but also by most investment advisors.  Options do not automatically equal risk.  Sure they can be used to play roulette with the markets but so can any stock.  How many people did you know that bought Apple when it hit $700 and seemed like it was only going up?  Where are those people now?

Options are no different. They are a powerful tool that can be used to reduce risk, increase income, and over all improve performance.  We encourage all of our clients to learn as much about options as possible so they can understand what we do.  We want everyone to be comfortable with our recommendations.
